Cookie Monster: Honey Almond Biscotti

My bucket list includes a bunch of obvious things—learn how to scuba dive, visit India, eat at Le Bernardin—but also a few stranger ones.

Cookie Monster: Fig and Walnut Biscotti

A holiday tradition in the Vasios household is to decorate clementines by pressing whole cloves into the skin of the fruit. I've always loved the old-timey feel of this activity, as if Charles Dickens himself is going to pop into my dining room and say, "Carrie, my dear, stop being so stingy with those cloves. Who do you think you are, Ebeneezer Scrooge?" More

Edible DIY: Bacon Chocolate Chip Biscotti

I pulsed the bacon in the food processor, which helped to infuse every last crumb of biscotti with smoky, meaty flavor. This is the stuff of dreams.
